      Super duper !

      There's some fine veining and bridges in that piece; you did well to cut them successfully. Whose pattern is it?

        That's wonderful!

        Yes, I'd love to know where the pattern comes from too.

          Nice work Ian, you turn things out like a machine.
          If you aren't selling or giving them away you must have stacks of your cuttings.

            Great job, even the oak looks nice

            That pattern would also be killer cut in a piece of bloodwood or redheart......

                Thanks again everyone.

                Gill and Chris - the pattern is a White tails design one - though I got mine through Wooden Teddy Bear.

                WTD have another one here that I fancy getting the pattern for - and yes Barry I'd already thought of bloodwood for it .. even if it is a bit pricey ..:-)

                    Yep, but all that does is increase your profit....

                      Ian, you've gotten more experience scrolling in the last few months than most people get in years. You are turning out some very excellent work. Either you're retired or you don't need sleep.

                        This dragon is lovely. I've looked at dragon clocks and will eventually make on for myself. Your work is superb as always.

                          Thanks Diane - hey did you see the Jeff Zaffino dragon pattern in the latest copy of the "other" magazine? Now that looks like a challenge! Think I'll practise a bit more with spirals before I attempt that one ..

                            I don't get the other magazine.

                            This magazine offered me a free issue and it gave me the incentive to get a 2 year subscription.
                            The "other" magazine does not have a free issue and therefore I don't know how it is. I cannot find it up where I live. Also the price is double what this one is. I'm sure I am missing out on some nice patterns but I will have to live with it for now.

                              Ian, this is a fantastic cutting. You've been doing a lot of great work!

                              I agree that if you do this again you should go for exotic lumber. Yeah, bloodwood or how about Chinese elmwood?

                                The last time I visited with Denny Winter 2020, I had an opportunity to try out the PEGA Saw that Denny has set up in his store. I was extremely impressed with the saw performance. It will be the saw that replaces my EX21 when I need a replacement. When I visite Denny I was considering purchasing it...

                                When I worked retail, we would have products plainly labeled "One rebate per address". And people would go ballistic six weeks later when their claims for three or four got shot down.
                                Can't imagine if it had been in small print like the ads of today.

                                First time posting.
                                I have a Pegas Scroll Saw that is almost 2 years old.
                                I saw about 1-2 hours a night right now and the speed will slow down and speed up on its own.
                                Sometimes it will run full speed for a week and then switch to slow for a week.
                                Any ideas on what might be causing...

                                That is the one store I physically get sick as soon as I walk in. The odor of rubber is overwhelming and I’m good for 3 minutes before I have to leave. Sure glad other stores aren’t like that. Hmmm maybe my bank balance would be higher if they were.

                                I wonder if their effort to offer better quality products may have something to do with it. Seems like they want to market themselves as something more than just a cheap tool supplier. Maybe reducing the number of things eligible for the big discount coupons is part of a campaign to change their image....
